Looks like the scabbard chape of a jambiya from Southern Yemen. A search for "gusbi" in the forum should produce some results for comparison.

I think it is a chape. Central Asia?

Hi Steve, Check here.....http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...highlight=gusbi
Teodor is correct I think. This is a "chape" from a Yemeni Jambiya. They come in many sizes and finishes. If you search "gusbi" you will see many more styles and sizes.
